yes, I would use a key like "warn_unwritable_config" and place it in that 
group. And document it in README.kiosk

To disable it for this user only, in $KDEHOME/share/config/kdeglobals
To disable it for a single app only, in $KDEHOME/share/config/<app>rc
To disable it for all users, in $KDEDIR/share/config/kdeglobals
